A project that recorded and gigged sporadically throughout the late 1990s, White Rose Transmission consisted of guitarist and vocalist Adrian Borland (the Outsiders, the Sound), vocalists Carlo Von Putten (the Convent) and Claudia Uman, keyboardist and guitarist Florian Brattman, and violinist David Maria Gramse. A self-titled record was issued in 1995. 700 Miles of Desert followed four years later, released two months after the suicide of Borland. A tour that had been scheduled prior to the tragedy was fulfilled after his passing, with the Chameleons' Mark Burgess -- who had provided his bass skills for the group's second record -- taking his place.
